Event Overview

Join us to discuss recent and upcoming changes to the Australian export control landscape.

Whether you are working within the Defence sector, or part of a research organisation handling controlled technologies, the changes will have a significant impact on your day-to-day operations and compliance obligations.

On the 8th of August, presenters Catherine van der Winden and Shashank Ramakrishna from SAHR Professional Services will cover:
• The recent updates implemented via the Defence Trade Controls Amendment Act 2014 and proposed regulations
• An overview of the available exemptions, including considerations in light of the AUKUS partnership
• The Safeguarding Australia’s Military Secrets Act 2024 and obligations for Foreign Work Authorisations
• How the changes will impact your organisation
• Recommendations for updating your organisation’s compliance program

As a leading provider of technology and export control (TEC) consultancy services, with over 100 years of collective TEC experience within the company and co-hosts of Australia’s Annual Export Controls Conference, SAHR is proud to be partnering with AIDN to present this 90-minute webinar.

Please note, the session will include time for attendees to ask the presenters questions, so here’s your chance to pick the brains of the SAHR team!

A link to the WebEx Webinar will be sent to all registered attendees the morning of the 8th August 2024.

Shashank ‘Shanks’ Ramakrishna, Co-Founder and Director at SAHR, brings over 16 years of experience within the Defence sector, with over half of this time extensively involved in Defence Technology Acquisition and Transfers and management of the subsequent Export Controls requirements.

Shanks began his career within Defence as an Aeronautical Engineering Officer within the Royal Australian Air Force and in 2019, Shanks formed SAHR with fellow co-founder Harry Singh, and subsequently began SAHR’s export controls practice, which at Q1 2024 has over a dozen experienced Technology & Export Controls consultants amounting to over 100 years of collective experience who are broadly providing support to Defence and Industry.


Catherine van der Winden is the Associate Director within SAHR and leads the Technology & Exports Controls function. Catherine has over 13 years experience in the legal and commercial area, with the last 9 specialising in international export controls, particularly ITAR compliance.
